Not if you didn't say anything inflammatory or against the guidelines, I don't think so. But now I want to see what you wrote.

I don't know how someone would know your username is you... Unless you've told them? But there is something you should know about the internet... since those comments you made were SO long ago, they've likely been indexed by Google, cached and stored there. If someone wanted to see it, they could check out the cache. Not to mention archive.org has probably already got the comments indexed.

Yeah, I kinda feel bad for you, [redacted]. This is probably the first request of its kind here at SpoFi. Erm, which comments are in question here? Just curious, you know.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess [redacted]. Assuming that, I have no idea how anyone would know who you are in real life, Mr. Random Van Halen Song man.

That must have been some good [redacted], because this guy is [redacted] beyond belief.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess this comment. Is his career in jeopardy because he spelled [redacted]'s name wrong?

Nah, I think it's [redacted]. He totally claimed that [redacted] on his expense report.

You can always say "It wasn't me". (I kid) Sorry to hear you want to leave SpoFi. I have read your comments and really don"t see the problem, unless it is the remark about [redacted]. But I agree with Jerseygirl, no one would know your screen name unless you told them. Also, if you are [redacted] now, what would be the problem?

The internet is just like Vegas. You know, "What happens here, stays here!" Except anyone can see what you did. I figure I blew my shot at running for President somewhere around 1998 when I first started using the net. Oh well. :)
